Our Half-Day tour will bring you to the best of Resurrection Bay and beyond! Resurrection Bay tends to be calm, and has some of the most scenic vistas and best wildlife watching around. Some of the things you might see are whales (gray, humpback, minke, fin, etc.), orcas, porpoises, otters, seals, sea lions, jumping salmon, bears, mountain goats, eagles, puffins, other sea birds, glaciers, dramatic scenery, waterfalls, icebergs, and more! We check out the alpine glaciers above the bay and also Bear Glacier, one of the glaciers in Kenai Fjords National Park. We will pull into small, secluded coves and shut the engines down and enjoy nature at its finest. Offered twice daily, this trip either leaves at 8AM and returns around noon or leaves at 1PM and returns around 5PM (but, if these times don’t work for you, just ask and we might be able to make it work!) These trips have a 2 person minimum and a 6 person maximum. Like all our trips, there is no “canned” route that we follow. We will tailor it to what you want to see and do! See our FAQ page for what to bring and policies.

Cost: $150/person
